    Hello all.

    Has anyone seen the Sky plasma in operation? I see it all the time in the sky magazine, thinking that it must be a rebadged something or other. But I am assured that it is in fact made by sky and is indeed very good.

    I have trouble believing that without seeing it.

    Anyone seen one of these panels running? Also what's the spec of it?

    Cheers

    One of the Sky plasmas does look a lot like the Hitachi 5200, but I don't know if it is. One thing is for sure - you can probably get it a lot cheaper elsewhere :)

    Yah, i got the T3 magazine and it says there the SKY model is SPDP4202 £3000
    Pros:Superb picture. Great styling. DVI and component connections. Piano black finish. Top notch audio.
    Cons:Only one scart socket.
    website www.sky.com
    'Its a rebadged version of Hitachi's 42PD5200. It's 1024 X 1024 pixel panel is HDTV friendly - appropriate, as SKy claims that it'll be broadcasting in high def as early as 2006...'

    it's on pg 92 of the Jan 2005 issue of T3

    what plasma reviewed the screen and said it was a hitachi 5200 they also reviewed the hitachi and again gave it a good review go for the hitachi as it is cheeper i have one and think its great but if you are going to spend £3000 go for the pioneer this is the best i can see for the price
    i got the hitachi £700 cheeper than the sky price
